The Division of Geotechnology of the MEERI PAS has existed since 2003. Its activity is focused on various aspects related to the underground storage of industrial gases (CO2 and hydrogen). The aspects related to the identification of industrial sources of CO2 emissions in Poland, the assessment and modelling of geological structures for underground storage and the broadly understood assessment of the environmental impact of projects related to gas capture and geological sequestration play an important role in the research and development activities of the team.
The research activity of the Division focuses on:
Members of the Geotechnology Division team are authors of several dozen articles and scientific publications in renowned international and national journals, including monographs in Polish and English.
In the indicated scientific and research field, the Division cooperates with national and foreign universities and scientific and research institutions (AGH University of Science and Technology, Lublin University of Technology, Silesian University of Technology, Polish Geological Institute, BRGM, Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik GmbH, GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland and others).
The Division team participated in several EU projects regarding underground CO2 and H2 storage (CO2SINK, EU GeoCapacity, CO2StoP, CO2ReMoVe, Hystories) and several national projects (financed by the National Science Center and the Ministry of the Environment).
The team has carried out scientific studies and expert opinions for the major energy and raw material companies in Poland, including:
We have competencies and knowledge in terms of assessing the potential of underground carbon and hydrogen storage. Thanks to constantly developing competencies, we offer the following scientific and research and development services:
